Dolphin 7.1.1 Released!

Andrew Boon posted 14th of March 2013 in News. 21 comments.

Early adopters started using Dolphin 7.1 Osho a while ago. Pragmatics, however, opted for wait-n-see strategy. Osho turned out to be a very successful update with awesome new features, fresh new look and great performance. It needed some fixes, though, so pragmatics may have been right. 

Anyway, today we are presenting Dolphin 7.1.1, which should lure everyone aboard. It's a "service" update, but it does have a big list of enhancements that make it really worthwhile even if your 7.1-powered site works well. Let's see...

Upgrade instructions - 7.1.0 to 7.1.1


Good luck and let us know how it goes! Next up, we already have some ideas about 7.2, but we certainly want to make sure Osho works well for everyone.


A little extra:

Just a few days ago Dolphin Mobile Apps for iOS and Android have been updated to 1.7.1 with a few tiny fixes. Prime clients may want to update their apps, too.

Thanks for the fixes and enhancement :)
Cool thank you, "we already have some ideas about 7.2" all the great ideas you'll find in the forum ;) like a chat that is usable , action pop up box that makes sense , flash is becoming a big no no ...
Overall good job!
I admit, you guys have been pretty speedy about updates. Thanks

Hopefully you guys will now have a lot more time to work on some of the much needed and begged for functions that will make Dolphin much better
a very great job, thanks..
Well done BoonEx; keep up the good job!
Will upgrade tonight. Nice to see things getting fixed so fast.
Good work at all, thanks a lot!
But still huge problems in groups module: "Manage members" list doesn't scroll when having many fans and promoting a fan as a group-admin in that list doesn't work (only shows cycling circle).
Please report details regarding this problem in forum
I have a new dolphin 7 template and I need someone who can do the customisation of the joing form, the template will be use for swingers so i need users to choose if they are couple,male, female, tx, gay,group.

here is my template:
I am running two of the 7.1.1 with TDMHosting they have some issues with VPS servers, so far base configuration is running but I am adding two customized templates this weekend so will see. I email Igor about CcBill to see if the mod works in 7.1.1 waiting to hear from him.
Why mobile apps are updating so often? Updates and fixes are good, but if you have a couple costumers at the time on 1.7 rebranding, 1.7.1 is coming and makes confuses: when almost all rebranding work done for 1.7, now they are asking to update to 1.7.1 instead.
In any way, thanks for updates.
1.7.1 version update is a quick unplanned fix, we have to make it:
- for Android to fix problem with Facebook login with some facebook accounts (within 6 days after release of 1.7.0, we hope it didn't affect anyone, since rebranding usually takes more time)
- for iPhone to fix version number on about screen (after about a month after 1.7.0, but this is not urgent, and should not affect rebranded versions)
Это же наглость ! Сколько можно делать эти новые бесполезные апдейты ? Вы отстали на 5 лет от всемирных трендов. Не делайте ничего ГОД но представьте общественности что нибудь по истине достойное. Либо если у вас проблемы так не создавайте их другим. Почему апдейт это платная see more услуга стоимостью примерно 50$ и ее предосталяют частные лица ? Почему нет кнопки АПДЕЙТ как у водпресс ? Кто тут вобще придумывает этот весь отсталый бред ??? Кому дать платный коучинг тренинг ЧТО В МИРЕ НЕОБХОДИМО СЕЙЧАС ??? Почему все новости это плохие новости ? Типа мы починили сломанное не рабочее ПО ? Зачем делать ошибки ? У вас платный сервис вы не имеете право на ошибку. А если делаете то вы и должны платить за эту ошибку а не Я.
Обновление можно произвести самому, это делается очень легко. Другое дело, если сайт переделанный и тогда конечно лучше заплатить кому-то, кто заново применит переделки после проведения обновления. Точно также обстоит дело и в том-же самом вордпрессе, если есть сторонние модификации. see more

Ошибки сведены к минимому, болшинство это небольшие улучшения облегчающие жизнь, или баги связанные с совместимость с новыми технологиями, например новые версии браузеров или используемых библиотек.
Особенно легко когда надо обновится на 3 - 4 версии вверх. И необходимо проделывать трюки в четырехкратном размере. Так в вордпресс тоже да ?
Чтобы обновиться на несколько версий сразу, можно залить все нужные обновления на сайт начиная с самого начально в возрастающем порядке, и запустить обновления поочередно, в конце последнего обновления(а не после каждого) сделать такие действия как чистка кэша и изменение see more версии. Т.е. практически не отличается от обновления одной версии (единственное - если есть какие-то ручные шаги, то их нужно сделать вручную - например удаление ненужных файлов)
Hello everyone. I feel great to be associated with Boonex team. Just need a help from you guys. I tried upgrading to Osho. But having some problems with technicalities. Can you do it for us?
